Through Many Fires -- A Bestseller
Through Many Fires, my third book, climbed to #10 on the Amazon Kindle science fiction post-apocalyptic list in August and has remained on the list since.
In Through Many Fires, Terrorists smuggle a nuclear bomb into Washington D.C. and detonate it during the State of the Union Address. Army veteran and congressional staffer Caden Westmore is in nearby Bethesda and watches as a mushroom cloud grows over the capital. The next day, as he drives away from the still burning city, he learns that another city has been destroyed and then another. America is under siege. Panic ensues and society starts to unravel.
Reviewers have praised the novel.
“I enjoyed the inner knowledge of military traditions and protocol. The characters are interesting and the plot is woven masterfully...Wonderful story and most highly recommended.” - A Navy Vet (Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer)
“Great story, vivid characters, real drama.” - Rob B (Amazon Review)
“A scenario out of our nightmares unfolds in this book. The pace, emotions, tactics and humanity written here are first rate...wish it was ten times longer. An excellent book. One worth reading more than once.” - Dupe (Amazon Review)
“Excellent read! Well written, fast paced, realistic.” - Mick Hager consultant and author of Monkey Business, 7 Laws of the Jungle for Becoming Best of the Bunch.
Because of the enthusiastic response to Through Many Fires I immediately started on the planned second book in the series, A Time to Endure. The bar graphs on the right show the progress of that, and other, writing projects. A Time to Endure will be released next year.
Titan Encounter – The Debut Novel
My debut novel, Titan Encounter, was released on July 21, 2012.
Titan Encounter is the story of Justin, a respected businessman in the Confederation of Free States along the edge of Earth Empire. He starts one morning as a respected businessman and ends the day a fugitive wanted by every power in the known universe. Fleeing with his ‘sister’ Mara and Naomi, a mysterious woman from Earth Empire, their only hope of refuge is with the Titans, genetically enhanced soldiers who rebelled, and murdered millions in the Titanomachy War.
The novel has been well received with comments like, “A must-read page turner!” Roger Colby, author of The Transgression Box, says, “If you like high adventure set in a futuristic backdrop, this novel is for you.”
Final Duty Free
Final Duty has been redesigned, retitled, re-priced and re-released.
The new title is Final Duty – The Speculative Fiction Anthology. The new book contains everything the old one had, including the title novella Final Duty and the short stories Infinite Darkness and The Promise. However, I’ve added lengthy excerpts from both of my novels, Through Many Fires and Titan Encounter. As future writing projects are completed, I plan to add excerpts of them to this book.
The lowest price an author can set on Amazon is 99 cents, but I want the book to be free for my readers so, I’m giving away the book on Smashwords and Google Play. Amazon is currently matching that price, making it free on their site also and, I expect, Nook and iTunes to soon follow.
So if you’ve been thinking about reading some of my work, but haven’t done so yet, now you can do for free.
